  1. During this weekend break, we had to suffer all weekend without incoming water. During set up, inserting the external Whale, and switching on the Master Switch and pressing the Tap Symbol button, all seemed well at first when opening the kitchen sink tap, hot water tank filled as normal, then nothing?. reset the. After Switch Tap button on/off a few times, and I could not get the running water tap symbol to display on the Master Control Panel. i ve checked the external pump Male/Female connections to make sure the submersible pump is inserted correctly and connection is sound. my fear is that the Pump on / pump off switch and master panel maybe be busted ?. anybody else experienced this problem, as Iโ€™ve now made contact with my dealer for a quick fix?

  2. Wastemaster is under bed locker, entry via near side locker door. So no need to walk into caravan to get things to set up the caravan everything accessible from outside. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  3. Hereโ€™s the photo proof of Aquaroll in front locker. Note the bottom rubber rim that the Aquaroll rolls on is dislodged and raised, so it sit perfectly inside locker. Tidy shelf above supports the ramps, water pump, and corner steady timber footings. alongside the Aquaroll is the EHU cable, water container etc. ive also shown the near side gas locker, with only one gas bottle, three stacking plastic containers to hold the awning pegs, misc fluids, etc, and bucket with cleaning equipment. Oh and another shelf over the top again. cannot fault this style of lockers on Coachman ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜€
  4. Hi All, yes you can get the aqua roll in the front locker. Iโ€™ll send a photo later, as we are all set up on tour at the moment. Only bit of advice is that the rubber rim at bottom end of aqua roll has to be slipped up off its groove, and hay presto the aqua roll fits perfectly well in the front offside lock. also a shelf I fitted above the aqua roll holds my pair of levelling ramps, and corner steady timber feet. And the EHU cable, small watering can is neatly stacked alongside the aqua roll. its amazing what you can hold in these front lockers. papaT
  5. Quite a simple task, and hereโ€™s the guide lines document for you. PapaT
  6. Yes we experienced our bottom drawer sliding open during transit. Probably overloaded by the other half, but a quick simple fix. I went to my dealer and asked for a second drawer catch, added this onto the drawer arrangement, by moving the original off centre, and added the second catch. Never opened during transit ever again. ooh you did have to add additional small timber runner along the rear face of frame work between the bottom and next drawer up to secure the catches. PapaT
  7. You will not regret you decision to op for Coachman, Feb is only 12 or so weeks away, and you have the years of enjoyment thereafter. am on my third Coachman and never off the road happy touring. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  8. Better method is to go under the A Frame and see the metal clips that hold the cable in the C section of Chassis. un clip them and slide the cable back on itself, and firm a loop, and only to leave enough length between tow car and caravan. Re clip the cable to C Section of Chassis, with this method no more excess length of cables to potentially loosen and drag on road surface.
  9. As recent owner of VIP 575 2018 - neither of you will be dissappointed with this model. We jumped from the 2012 VIP 560/4, to 2015 VIP 575/4, then latterly with the 2018 VIP 575/4 and very impressed with it. PapaT
  10. Yes I experienced this problem with concertina blind door coming out of track during transit to / from sites. Further investigation by myself, found that the blind whilst parked up was not resting on bottom shoe holder, and only suspended at the top. This resulted in the track splitting at either side and the guides came out of the slider track. so this was reported via dealer, but I carried out my own repair on the bottom shoe holder, inserting missing screws, and inserting a plastic shim packer within the shoe holder, to ensure the concertina blind was supported at bottom rather that suspending from a split head track. The above solved the problem of blind coming out of the track during transit, and Coachman supplied a replacement ceiling track, to which the dealer fitted at a later date. no further problems occurred PapaT
  11. Update - weโ€™ll ive recalibrated the Whale IC Unit, as described in manufacturers instruction leaflet. All was fine, with showering at constant pressure and temperature whilst rinsing yourself down. Then I turned the shower off to foam / lather myself up. Then turned the shower on at the temperature setting when I switched the shower off at. Problems started with fluctuating temps again. Very disappointing. But if you, when you turn the shower on, ALWAYS START the water flow from COLD POSITION, rising to desired temperature, then the problem disappears. So the motive on this posting is the shower is great, with constant temperature and pressure only if you start the shower from opening the tap on COLD POSITION and turning to desired temperature. Enjoy. PapaT

  13. Very interesting reading, as I was experiencing the same problem with our Coachman VIP 575 2018 Model. Previous VIP had the Truma water system and was a great shower. So to discover the New Whale IC System wasnโ€™t as efficient ( ie fluctuating temperatures not the pressure ) caught me by surprise, almost scolding me. So I have read the above CT and carried out the recalibration using the cold water in shower cubicle, and await with bated breath until I have my next Hot or Cold Shower ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฉ PapaT
